January 2021 Meeting Recap

The Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild met via Zoom January 16th. We had 21 members in attendance.

Our first task was voting to alter our by-laws to accommodate the number of board members for our organization. Jennifer Grace moved to accept the proposed change and the motion was seconded. Next, our membership was reminded that dues for 2021 are payable until February 28th. $45 can be paid via PayPal (friends and family option only) or a check can be sent to Christy Cooper.  If you have any questions, please send an email to

With business out of the way we were able to turn to more quilt oriented topics. We're asking for pictures of completed Chromatic Quilts from our 2020 Quilt Along. We'd like to have those by the end of February.

There are a couple of KMQG Zoom Sit N Stitch sessions coming up. The next is on February 12th from 7-9pm and another on Thursday March 25th, also from 7-9pm. Check your email for more details about these events or reach out if you need more information.

We're looking for volunteers for our Featured Freebie and new Member Spotlight features. If you've found a free project or tutorial that you'd like to share with the group we'd love for you to present it during an upcoming meeting. Reach out to to sign up for an upcoming month. Also, send us an email if you're interested in doing a Member Spotlight. This is a great way for us to get to know each other especially since we don't have the benefit of regular in-person meetings.

Our charity quilt project for the Restoration House of East Tennessee is going to be subdivided into smaller groups. Those signed up for the small group charity project should get their group assignments by January 31st.

QuiltCon Together is February 18th-22nd. Several of our members are taking classes and we hope that every one gets an opportunity to view the quilt show. We're moving our next meeting date to February 27th when we'll discuss our experiences with virtual QuiltCon. We hope to see you there!
